Optimizing Payment Accuracy: A Health
Insurance Provider’s Perspective

  • September 10, 2021
  • 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM ET
  • Online

Traditionally, payment accuracy processes have been disjointed, complicated, and often fraught with errors. Health insurance providers have relied on on-premises technology and multiple vendors, creating fragmentation throughout the continuum. However, an integrated approach that coordinates disparate processes and innovative delivery models offers new insights—allowing health insurance providers to drive accuracy earlier and closer to the point of care.

During this webinar, panelists from Blue Cross Blue Shield Michigan and Change Healthcare will discuss how they are using a cohesive approach that offers a view across multiple solutions at different points along the payment continuum to drive performance improvements and savings.

Attendees will learn about:

  • How to optimize payment accuracy functionality, improve results, and increase speed to value while reducing complexity
  • How to initiate a roadmap to optimize an existing payment accuracy strategy
  • What new insights can be gathered through a single, transparent view of the process
  • Best practices from fellow health insurance providers actively undergoing this transformation
